About a month ago we had the great honor of being part of a historical day, a historical moment. A big gathering happened in the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway, where about 10.000 people came together.
People of different generations, from all over the globe gathered to worship Jesus, to encounter Him and give Him their “yes”.
“What could happen if we gave our full yes to Jesus?”- this was the invitation given at the event.
Now it is a new time! Time to go all in! Time for this generation! Time to be mobilized and activated to go and bring the Good News! To give a voice to the voiceless!
The Day was full of activation, worship and prayer, believing for a generation to go all in for Jesus!
Also some of us from Central Europe were at this event, able to participate there, get soaked into worship and fellowship with one another. For me that whole day was so refreshing, so inspiring and full of God’s closeness.
My first highlight was when there was a call to missions, or respond to the invitation from Isaiah 6:8 – Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Standing in front of the whole crowd and seeing everyone lifting up their shoes (as a sign) that they are ready to go. That was such a significant moment. Knowing that out there are many young people who are ready to surrender their life for Jesus.
And then the second highlight was at the very end, when Alf and Margareta Magnues, heroes of faith, parents of many, shared and prayed over us. Those moments were so encouraging, so full of faith and hope and unity, bridging generations and connecting us. There is such a value in multi generations walking together. It was so evident that these moments were full of God’s presence and purpose.
There are about 3 billion people in the world and almost half of these people have never heard the name of Jesus or the Gospel! That’s why The Send happened – because there are many who don’t know the love of Jesus yet!
